With The Jubilee behind us and the Olympics almost here, we are still in celebratory mode and country seems to be honoring everything that’s great about Britain. But not just current events or anniversaries, we are also getting nostalgic for a Britain from years gone by. Bunting sales have never been higher, we are a nation obsessed with cup cakes and home baking, and vintage clothes are hugely sort after, as is vintage crockery. Even plastic toys aren’t good enough anymore, toys based on old wooden designs are must have items and ‘staycationing’ is the new way to holiday. Every evening there are TV programmes about Britain, and its heritage & traditions filling the schedules.
So with that in mind, we would like to bring you some British vintage inspired pieces from our Pepperberry collection. Take a look at Shop By Trend, and then Time For Tea, you’ll find ditsy prints, polka dots and a dash of red white and blue.
Two gorgeous cardis that just sum up that vintage look are the Pointelle Cardigan in navy and the Printed Cardigan in flower print.
The Pointelle Cardigan is a versatile and light cover-up for the summer, and navy is a classic colour, that will look great with a white fitted Tee, but also look fabulous over a coloured summer dress. This cardi, is really flattering, due to the large ribbed waist area, it will hug your curves in all the right places.
The Printed Cardigan is a pretty cardigan that will really liven up plain neutrals. We have had some great reviews about this item, because of the flattering fit, great quality, pretty buttons and lovely floral print. Try it with Pepperberry’s stylish Linen Skirt in Sand, or for a cute summer look, wear with Shimmer Shorts in Gold.
The Frill Front Dress, in Green, is a really pretty vintage style tea dress, it is made from a gorgeous silk cotton blend fabric. It has cute puff sleeves, a ruffle as a centre detail, and a matching waist tie. It is extra flattering over the tummy area and the hips, perfect for a shaped figure. The Frill Front Dress would be a great summer buy, feminine, comfortable and smart, it could be worn for a variety of events and occasions. Team it with some indigo coloured wedges and a denim jacket for a dressed down vintage look, or accessorise it with the Sparkle Wrist Strap Clutch Bag and silver sling back kitten heels, a floral fascinator and a cropped fitted jacket and you have the perfect outfit for a summer wedding.
